The present study is to evaluate a systemic record of the relative antioxidant activity of Kedrostis foetidissima. The ethanolic extract of Kedrostis foetidissima was screened for their free radical, hydroxyl radical, superoxide and nitric oxide scavenging activity. Total antioxidant activities of ethanolic extract were compared with standard antioxidants ascorbic acid, copper sulphate 2, 6- di-ter-butyl-p-hydroxytoluene (BHT). Results indicate the ethanolic extract exhibited antioxidant potential of in-vitro screening methods. The results indicate that ethanolic extract showed moderate activity against standard drugs
